Gujarat has a long tradition of cottage scale textile production and artisanal craftsmanship. This itinerary focuses on the many small communities who are keeping such traditions alive.

Mahatma Gandhi, a native of Gujarat, made cottage industry – particularly textile production – a cornerstone of his drive to establish economic independence from Britain. Separately, Gujarat is home to diverse ethnic and semi-nomadic tribal groups, who have their own craft traditions. As a result, Gujarat is home to some of India’s most exquisite hand-embellished crafts, which, along with cottage textile production, are the bedrock of the rural economy.
